That's exactly why their "protests" during the national anthem was the wrong place to express their beliefs .... they MADE IT ABOUT the anthem and the troops by stepping on such a historically honored

I swear to you, I have not watched 1 single NFL game this season because of several factors.  #1 the anthem protests... which is as much me boycotting the networks that choose to show it as much as I

Man...  they just keep digging that hole deeper: NFL rejects veterans group's Super Bowl ad urging people to stand for the anthem

I still think the McCain plan on Cable television is the way to go. Cable companies set a price for each channel and you buy what you want. Instead cable companies sell you these 200+ packages that I have to get in order to watch the 30 channels I want...

 

That is why I left cable. I now use internet television. ROKU, Chromecast etc is the way to go.... 1 time fee and find the apps that fit your viewing pleasure. If you have a friend or family member that wish to share their cable provider login information, even better.

Playstation network actually allows you to do that Mav.

 

My newest system is an Xbox 360... The new PS comes out this Christmas I believe (maybe next). When it does I am going to "get my son one."

I agree with everything Breitbart posted, unfortunately America inherited slavery. Who sold the slaves to begin with ? Other tribes. It wasn't just white men trading in slaves. I suppose that he is so intelligent that he doesn't know that Ghana has some of the highest slavery in the world today according to this : https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2013/10/17/this-map-shows-where-the-worlds-30-million-slaves-live-there-are-60000-in-the-u-s/?utm_term=.48500304c9ea . This guy needs to educate himself. In my opinion America when it was founded should have abolished slavery, but they didn't. All men are created equal, not just white men. It's how we as an individual deal the the trials of life that can either make us or break us. There are people of all races that are born to wealth, and while Kaepernick wasn't born to an extremely wealthy family. He is wealthy now. He should be able to live like a King in Ghana with their cost of living there, but he could make much more living in the States even if he never plays in the NFL again.

 

One thing that bugged me this past Independence Day was many liberals stating that America is a white man's holiday. No it's not ! While we did get many things wrong in our infancy, many of those have been corrected. If they hadn't they would not be allowed to protest, and fight for the causes that they deem appropriate. Today they want to limit those rights by banning the first amendment, well there goes their right to protest. That's not very smart thinking. It will still apply to them, even though they think it won't. They might get their way at liberal Universities, but that is a closed society. They should be grateful for the liberties and freedoms that we still have, and many of them have been worn away. I've seen it more in the past 15 years, than I have In the 33 years that I experienced before. I want those freedoms back, and yes I desire that they have them as well.

This has happened to other leagues lately. The Shield will find another advertiser pop up to replace them. It shouldn't be hard to do. The long and the short of it was these commercials were hard to handle for a family broadcast. When word reached Goodell about a ad featuring Dick Butkus and Fair Hooker was going absolutely too far. I don't expect the league to limp in its advertising efforts.

I don't think it was the only reason why, but they reaching for something to blame their downfall on. They basically do the same thing with their coverage.

Did anyone actually read the poll? The click-bait headlines make it seem like OMG...no it was not.

 

287 people said because of the anthem..3 percent said that. Almost as many said how the NFL handled domestic abuse(2.8) and game delays(2.8)

We should fire the Steelers. But if you remember that far back, teams used to always remain in the locker room until after the anthem except for the SB
